Goho: Plausibility of Christianity

Existential Introspection

GRASPING the full scope of Christ is complex, to say the least. While Christ may be the absolute archetypal figure, the ultimate standard to which all is measured, and the epitome of a meaningful existence itself. There are various underlying layers that arise amidst the difficulties in discerning the objective and the narrative world.

As a historical and mythical figure, it is all but plausible to instill faith in all that is presented given the lack of other alternatives and given the objectivity and intelligibility of such a profound depth. The overall message is also seemingly reassuring in providing a consistent foundation and perspective to all of existence.

Beyond the elements manifested from all the wisdom and learnings from the scriptures, it is difficult to pinpoint and to even begin to wrap our head around ways in deciphering the word, and what is even more arduous is instilling applications from the substance and significance of the gospel itself in going about our endless journey of eradicating and resolving minute trials which are byproducts of the imperfect and flawed nature of our earthly consciousness and finite lives.

While there is an absolute aim for meaning since it is evident how all yearn for such, there are vast subjectivities and divisions brought about by individualities. Our species embark on various endeavors and pursuits which create avenues toward broad and multifaceted experiences. There is a great challenge in correlating the objective and narrative world due to the overwhelming diversities of reality itself where there is carnality, evil, and destruction ever so present.

If it is not a formula or a simplistic procedure, what then is the basis in how we objectively orient ourselves with the moral world in front of us. The journey is cumbersome and excruciatingly painful in some moments, and yet there is an aim to pursue peace and freedom in the truest sense.

There may be no other alternative but Christ, there is no other way to escape a dysfunctional path towards death unless we see the full context and value of the true meaning of our humanity. In spite of whatever we may be seeking and chasing after in this material world, Christ seems to be the one true way to overcoming all the limitations and setbacks that lead to mere meaninglessness.

We are all just lost and limited souls until we find real redemption even in the smallest of steps. We have the capacity to seek and discern truth if we are honest with ourselves and seize intellectual laziness. However, it rests entirely upon the choices and decisions we make which eventually mold our utmost destination.
